Christian McPhilamy from Melbourne, Florida began growing his hair out after watching a commercial for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital when he was six years old. 2 years later he chopped it all off to donate it to a charity, based in Michigan, which provides a free hair piece every year for children who have lost their hair through things like cancer and burns.
“Some people tried to call me a girl,” McPhilamy told Florida Today. He said this made him feel “not very good,” but that never stopped him from completing his mission and donating his hair to Children With Hair Loss.
His mom Deeanna Thomas is still awed by his determination.
“Christian has such a huge heart,” Thomas, who lives in Melbourne, Florida, told TODAY Parents. “I don’t even know if there are words to describe how proud I am of him.”
